storytelling, strategy, design

Everything we do here is custom, designed for your science, your goals, and your budget. We have created art installations, live events, films, websites, and more — all built through the craft of compelling storytelling. Because great storytelling is the lifeblood of great communication.

And it all begins with you.


Our process



We become immersed in you and your science, to discover the compelling threads in your work and explore the touch points that resonate with a large audience.



We map your audience and goals. We craft your narrative and define the characters. We design a media and marketing strategy to ensure you achieve your goals.



We create visual and social content to share your story with the world. May include an immersive website, documentary film, photos, social media, and more.

Our funding takes two forms:


I have money

I have funding and would like to hire Impact Media Lab to develop an outreach campaign:

You already have funding, wonderful! In this model, we brainstorm a media campaign together, based on your budget, your outreach goals, and the type of work that you do. We could create a documentary, an interactive web application, a new website for the project or your lab group. There is no limit to what we can build together.

I will have money!

I am applying for a grant and would like Impact Media Lab to develop my Broader Impacts section:

You're applying for a grant, great! Partnering with Impact Media Lab makes your grant proposals more competitive (we have a strong record of securing National Science Foundation funding). In this model, we collaborate to craft an exciting outreach campaign. We write the Broader Impacts section for you and add our production costs to the project budget.
